jiqiren played with Miraculous Youngster, China's strongest team at the time, in 2017. He left competitive Overwatch play following the disband of MY, but returned a few months later on Team CC, the academy team of the Shanghai Dragons. He competed with Team CC in all three seasons of Contenders 2018.
He played alongside fellow Hunters YangXiaoLong and Lateyoung on Miraculous Youngster and was coached by RUI , now the head coach of the Hunters. In fact, his experience with Lateyoung goes beyond Miraculous Youngster as the two also played side-by-side on Team CC.
The roster's only other main tank is Ameng , who previously went by Vanessa. He is most well-known for playing on Legend Young Beyond and Moss Seven Club.
jiqiren is the 10th player to join the Hunters roster. They are the only team in the Overwatch League made up entirely of Mandarin-speaking players.
Their first match of the season is against another Chinese team: the Guangzhou Charge. That match is set to take place February 15.
